Yes. It was pretty good and I liked the way the author gave some background to the characters.
There really wasn't a character that I liked the best.
I can say that Annie was my least favorite character. No one deserves to go through what she did in the end, but she brought so much of it on herself. Through it all she never grew on me like some characters do. I just can't get attached to a character that can switch "values" so quickly.
I would have cast Scott Brick.
I want to say that narrators make such a difference between an okay book and a great book......or a great book and a bad book. If the narrator didn't sound like he was a 1st grader reading out of a book during the narrations....I would have really liked him.
He did well with the voices, but definitely not the narration. At times it was like fingers on a chalkboard.
I would like to see this author succeed because he does write a good story.
The narrator is one of my favorites. Of course I also liked the content of the book.
Yes. Although I knew at the beginning who the bad guy was, there were many twists and turns that were interesting and surprising.
I liked how we were able to get into the mind of the bad guys to see what their motives were.
I liked Jonathan Harper...I pretty much like every character Christopher Lane performs. He brings all the characters to life and makes them very believable.
A bit.....right at the end I got a bit of a lump in my throat.
I get a bit annoyed when people pick apart something that should just be enjoyed.
Too many people are hyper critical about the ghostwriter. I think the ghostwriter has done a terrific job with these books.
Admittedly, I hesitated to listen to the rest of the series after reading the critical reviews of the books written by the ghostwriter. I'm very glad I decided to listen to them. I really like how all the characters in the book have developed and have gotten attached to them.
Maybe Erik......I would like to give him another chance.
I definitely liked the narrator. He kept me listening when I was ready to give up. I would listen to him again if the book was in my genre.
No.....unless people like long, long overly detailed books.
I always like a narrator who can read the opposite sex and not be able to notice that it is the opposite sex trying too hard to sound like the opposite sex!.....I hope that isn't too redundant!
He was able to really bring to life all the different characters in the book. Even if the character wasn't announced, I knew it was that particular person.
He had a perfect tone of voice for the book. I always dislike narrators that make a mystery or thriller sound like a dumb joke....Mikael did not do that and I would listen to his narration again in a minute if he were to narrate another mystery/thriller.
His narration kept me hoping this book would actually get more interesting.
So much of the background of each character. There was so much repetition to each characters background that I got exhausted listening to it.
This book could have been so much better if it was half the length.
Even though there was a "twist" in the last part of the book.....it came as no surprise at all. I knew the ending less than a quarter of the way in the book.
I know that some books mean for you to know....but I don't believe it was the authors intention for us to know.....unfortunately the cat was out of the bag because of too much information.
The narrator. I think he should have read all of Stephen Leathers books.
I really liked the complex story line and how people can learn to accept other peoples character flaws through spending time and getting to know them. The protagonist had to come face to face with his own prejudices and and came out with a better understanding of certain people. I really liked this man and became attached! I was so sad to have the story end. I would love it if there was a series for him!
John Wells of course!
He is great at getting out of tough situations and when he has to be ruthless, he is. But not without thought. He doesn't like to kill but knows its necessary when he does. He is all about problem solving and doing the right thing. He does a lot of internal thinking and at times doesn't like what he sees in himself but is pragmatic enough to move on.
I really like the fact that he has a conscience and has a faith. At times he struggles with it, but knows in the end that's all he really has left.
I really have a deep fondness for this series. I skipped a couple books and regret it. I can only be excited to listen to the next book!
Everything about the story just seemed too flippant. I gave 2 stars because this story could have had more depth. There could have been so much more potential for this book if the plot would have been more in depth. It was like- Killer gets hired to shoot girl- killer meets girl- killer likes girl- killer decides not to kill girl- killer protects girl- killer then has lots of sex with girl...and by the way, girl has 7 year old daughter. daughter sees and knows too much....oh and by the way the reason girl is being hunted is because she has information that could get her killed....and in between there is a lot of joking around about the killing and sex.I listened to the whole story because I kept waiting for the book to have some meat to it.I just could not care about what happened to any of the main characters because none of them seemed to be worth caring for.....including the little girl because of the flippant way they treated everything that happened.I like humor well enough in thrillers.....the humor just seemed to be there all the time and at the most inappropriate moments. I wish the author could go back and rewrite the story and make it more meaningful. I bought this audio book because it had such a tantalizing plot. It was a lot like when you see a beautiful cake and when you take a bite, the flavor is just not there.it could have been delicious but the baker was too concerned about the outside of the cake that he didn't take the time to put in the ingredients that would have given it a delicious flavor.
I didn't care what happened in the end......because I didn't care about the plot line or the characters. The book just fizzled in the end.
I didn't care for the narrator. I don't know if it was because of the book or because he would be monotone for a while then a bit more animated when they made a joke out of everything. I dint know if I have heard any of his other performances but this book just didn't seem to fit his narration style.
The plot. That's why the book was disappointing though. It could have been a five star book if it had more depth.
I feel cheated!
This was a good second book. It definitely makes you want to trust no one with your children.
I really like the developement of the main character. I also really like the narrator. His voice totally fits who I imagine Victor to look like!
It just seemed like there was a lot of unnecessary information.....like the author was putting it in there to make the story long enough....it turned out to be a drag.
Dalton Fury is such a great story teller. He is able to convey what is going on and keep it simple enough so people (me) can understand the different aspects of military operations...and make it an excellent story.
Ari Fliakos is such a great narrator. I really hope he does more work. Narrators can make or break a book and he definitely made this book even better...if that's possible!
You can always tell a great narrator when you don't think about the way they are making the opposite sex sound when they are reading that part....he is one of them.
